I trust Jason doesn't mind me quoting from his recent post wondering if his PSA of 1.9 was high for his young age --- an important quesiton and one I wish I could help him with, however, it seems he's getting some good advice.
In any event, at the end of his post Jason wrote, "Also I see that there are issues that can cause a false positive like sex with in 24hrs of the test which I am sure that was the case with me as my wife is a nympho. Would this have played a factor in it to?" and not a single member --- I'm talking nada, zilch, zero --- has commented on Jason's sex question. Including yours truly.
Roll up the sidewalks gentlemen. It's time for our Ovaltine, Metamucil, and a scrub of our dentures before we nod off.
